Original c. 1962 photograph of Yankees Hall of Famer Mickey Mantle striking a batting pose during Spring Training. Eerily reminiscent of his Topps Baseball Cards from the era, this is one of his best photographs taken from the early to mid-sixties (stamped by the newspaper in 1964) and presents here in nice shape with some minimal handling wear. Issued by the Yankees, this is about as good as Mantle photos get considering pose and quality. Photo is pre-authenticated by PSA and the reverse carries the sticker for verification (no paper LOA however but one can be issued as a replacement).
